I think as far as crimes go, its sorta decreasing. The amount of homeless at times seems a lot during the summer time, however, since Pokemon Go came out, the homeless and transients are being seen mainly during daylight hours, not so much in the evening anymore since many folks playing pokemon are out and about and my theory is because its on the phones and its perceived that they are taking photos, which some do, and many homeless don't particularly enjoy their photo taken drunk or high. Police have been pretty quicker lately to respond to calls, and their presence has been a little more lately since the Pokemon Go folks are out, which feels much safer.

I really enjoy living in a smallish town of 28K people. Not always a lot of foot traffic in the winter fall times. Summer is busy with tourist. Summer they fill the downtown with potted flowers and although the weather isn't always very predictable, but its nice here very much so. New people are moving here weekly who have an income or seeking jobs or going to school. One of the better places I have lived in the last 10 years. I would definitely choose to live here again if I had the choice.

If we could just help the mentally ill and get help for the drugs and alcohol it would make Aberdeen alot better I would stay here if those couple things could get managed better. There is good to Aberdeen, the beauty of Lake Quinault, beaches, mountains. The other good thing is things are cheaper here then they are any where else and it's a small community so the roads aren't always packed full of cars and the stores are always packed but still enough room to move.
